Dawn Of War was created in the year 2000 by founding members Dayv Green (guitars, backing vocals), Dean Milak (drums) and Chris Rivera (vocals). Ted Carlson (bass) joined in late 2001, and Scott Aman (vocals) joined early 2002. During the summer of 2002 Ted decided to leave the band and was replaced on bass by Adam Deacon. Soon after that Scott also left the band leaving the sick four piece machine that Dawn Of War is today. Dawn Of War takes elements hardcore bands such as Hatebreed, Terror, Madball, All Out War , Diecast , One King Down, and Integrity. Dawn Of War wishes to bring the Rochester NY hardcore scene to its pinnacle. Joining arms with local acts including Downdriven, Inherence, Blood Stained Betrayal and Ghost has helped to revive a dying scene. DAWN OF WAR blends quick drum beats, heavy guitars, and a vocal onslaught into one united sound.
